Modern-day pioneers (you) decked in a bonnet or hat of the times, pull handcarts to 20 campsites where you learn interesting pioneer history and reenact actual pioneer experiences. For example: getting caught in a cloudburst, scrubbing clothing on a wash board, using body language to negotiate with Native Americans for buffalo jerky, shaking cream into butter along the way, and enjoying your butter on cornbread when you reach Zion.
